Global FDI flows to rise this year

GENEVA, January 21, 2020

Global foreign direct investment (FDI) flows will rise marginally in 2020 on the back of further modest growth of the world economy, United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) said.
According to the Global Investment Trends Monitor published by UNCTAD, global FDI flows remained flat in 2019 at $1.39 trillion, a one percent decline from the revised figure of $1.41 trillion in 2018.
"This is against the backdrop of weaker macroeconomic performance and policy uncertainty for investors, including trade tensions," said the report.
FDI flows to developed countries remained at a historically low level, decreasing by a further six percent to an estimated $643 billion, whereas FDI flows to developing economies remained stable at an estimated $695 billion.
